Friday morning I was on the train to work, on complete autopilot, when another lady cyclist commented that we both matched our bikes.
I asked her if it was intentional - she was wearing teal leggings with a black shirt and a teal backpack that matched an older teal Specialized (I think, I hadn't had coffee yet) that she said she had been using as a beater. She said it was pure coincidence, but it was a pretty awesome accident!
I was in an orange tank with orange gloves and an orange helmet, which is all intentional on my part - visibility, a cool color combo, and appeasing Giants fans and all that. We got to talking a bit about bikes and commuting in style, and then parted ways at the next stop.
Thank you, rad stranger. It was a brief but excellent encounter that made my day!
